Thanks for the pointer to DVDRHelp.com; I've gone through the guides there. (Which seem to mainly be tailored to people wanting to rip commercial DVDs and encode DiVX;) versions from them.)

If anyone has specific steps they've taken to extract bit-perfect MPEG2 and audio files from a DVD's VIDEO_TS directory, please share them here. My experience with several tools is that they were slow and did not extract the original MPEG2, but rather created a new one (which resulted in serious video artifacts).

GrooveTV we've got it covered...we author our own DVDs from the source material. But I'm trying to help a number of others to use Archive.org to share their video content, and some of those cases only have DVD and SVHS sources available (and I can't capture from SVHS myself).

I use DVD Decrypter to pull a single VOB file off of a DVD. Then I use Womble's MPEG-VCR to convert the VOB to a simple MPEG-2 program stream. I also use MPEG-VCR to trim the clip and convert the audio to 192kps MPEG layer 2.

Hope this helps.
